Do you know my issue?
Expert:  Jack replied 4 months ago.

Hello , i`ll start with those 6 blinks , they don`t mean anything beside the fact that the tv has detected a problem .

Do you still have the sound ?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
do not think so. I do not hear anything from the tv.
Expert:  Jack replied 4 months ago.

You said there were lines on the screen ?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I have four grey lines on the right side of the screen.
Expert:  Jack replied 4 months ago.

O.k then it means the screen light up ?

Can you see the TV's own menu ?

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, a little more background info please:

  • • has it been in storage for a length of time;
  • • is this a sudden recent issue;
  • • or slowly developing while in use;
  • • any recent work, installation or mods done involving the TV;
  • • or anything out of the ordinary prior to this fault such as a storm, lightning strike or even power failure/fluctuations?

Still, the described symptom almost always point to an internal hardware issue. This would then require that the unit be opened up for visual inspection, voltage/continuity/resistance checks, confirm faults and effect repairs.

Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, you would need to have access to and be familiar with a multi-meter and even perhaps a soldering iron.

If considering a DIY, please post back with clear picture of the power supply board. Click HERE.

Of particular interest would be the board number, something like A3AFM023.
